The Commando Memorial

The Commando Memorial is held in high regard and is recognised as a place of National and International importance. It is maintained in memory of and as a tribute to those Commandos who gave their lives in the Second World War and during more recent conflicts.

It is supported through financial donations from the visiting public and we look after the memorial site with the aim of retaining the dignity and purpose of the Commando Memorial.

A new area has been created specifically for the scattering of ashes adjacent to the Garden of Remembrance.

We ask that family and friends wishing to place small memorials and plaques in the memorial garden kindly ensure that plaques measure no more than 6 inches by 4 inches, are made from weather-proof material and are held securely by a ground stake. Due to the severity of the Highland weather, items left in the garden can deteriorate quickly.  Therefore, we will, on occassion, with dignity and integrity remove and dispose of items that have deteriorated.  We respectively ask that no soft toys are left at the site for this reason.

Report damage
